    Rahat Loukoum wanted

    Hi everyone,

    is there someone who lives in the EU who owns Rahat Loukoum by Lutens and can send me a sample? I can swap with any perfume in my wardrobe.

    Thanks!

  5. Re: Maria Candida Gentile's Exultat and Gershwin: two reviews

    I respect everybody's opinion, but Exultat is worn by many people, so it's not "impossible to wear". It might not bond well with the chemistry of your skin, but that's not enough to dismiss it as a...

    Thank you for your wonderful review. I do believe that no one can work with frankincense as Maria Candida does.

    Wonderful reviews, Foustie. Thank you so much for the time and the effrort. The outcome is impressive, just like I expected.

    My pleasure :) MCG will launch her line in London sometimes in spring, so anyone interested should check her website for updates.

    Merely, yes, it's the Madagascan vanilla absolute.
  11. Re: Maria Candida Gentile's Exultat and Gershwin: two reviews

    Merely, I agree with Foustie: Barry Lyndon's drydown doesn't remind me of Kouros at all. It's more sophisticated, not at all "bad smelling". On me, unlike on Foustie, it lasts for hours.

    It's a...

    Barry Lyndon is absolutely wonderful. It is the smell of a ride in the country on a horse. Artemisia, a special kind of lavender, birch bark are some of the notes.
  13. Re: Maria Candida Gentile's Exultat and Gershwin: two reviews

    Thank you for your review!
    I'm not surprised that Exultat impressed so favourably all the people you know. It's wonderful. My three-word review review is "Frankincense smells sexy" ;)

    By the way,...

    Good news: in May she'll introduce her fragrances in London ;)
  15. Re: What would be the best italian fragrance??

    I can't believe that no one has mentioned Maria Candida Gentile's parfums yet. She's the best of the lot, in my opinion.
    Try at least Barry Lyndon, there's nothing better for a gentleman out there.

    I've smelled the whole Frederic Malle line, many of which on my skin, wore the content of several vial samples, and bought one, which now I dislike :(

    +1 And I'd add Barry Lyndon and Gershwin, at least.

    Re: Most underrated house

    Absolutely agree! She makes extraordinary perfumes, and you can hardly find her on the internet. Try, if you can, Barry Lyndon, Exultat, or Gershwin...

  24. Re: Dior Fahrenheit Absolute Intense - any review/opinions ?

    To me Fahrenheit absolute is about oud and incense. Together, they smell amazing, both hot and cold.
